(Figure Presented) A total gent: Inspired by the biosynthesis of celogentin C, a highly stereoselective and efficient palladium-catalyzed C-H functionalization strategy is employed to construct the key Leu-Trp linkage of this bicyclic compound. A streamlined synthesis is completed in 23 steps from simple amino acid building blocks.
